Why people love Fircrest:

The City of Fircrest is located between Central Tacoma, Tacoma’s West Slope, and University Place. One of those idyllic “small towns” Americans tend to pine for, Fircrest is like something from another time. Conveniently located near Highway 16, it’s also a great choice for those with commutes.

Many people moved to Fircrest during it’s building boom in the 50’s and 60’s and simply never left. For this reason, Fircrest has a strong community culture and an abundance of houses from the 50’s and 60’s that are largely untouched by time. As time marches on, these homes have begun to come on the market and mid-century modern architecture fans are flocking to snatch them up!

What to do in Fircrest:

Fircrest’s citizens have a very strong sense of ownership and involvement in their community. Fircrest constructed the community building, followed by the construction of the swimming pool and the dedication of Masko Park in the 1960’s. The number of community activities and resources available to the community is unrivaled in the area. Events like the Annual Strawberry Feed and the neighborhood block parties are a result of the great neighborhood and community spirit of Fircrest.
